Default Boy Peeing In Lake

I have this print that is over 50+ years old, it's a boy peeing in a lake and a frog is climbing out of the water spiting out water.

At the bottom it reads: Ne buvez jamais d'eau

I just can't make out the artist name.

Please Help

My great aunt had one of these prints and I took a picture of it 20+ years ago. It was in her bathroom hanging over the toilet! I still have the pic and will scan it in eventually...
I'm just curious if you are interested in selling it? I am, of course, checking Ebay, etc. Have a nice day!

Red face Geroges Redon

I have a print and is signed. It is titled: l'ouie; "la voix de son maitre". It is a picture of a young child sitting at a piano with a small dog sitting on a chair howling. It is the cutest thing! I can not find any info on it or any reference to it. Has anyone seen this print before?

Smile George Redon

I have two drawings by this artist. One is "boy peeing in water, with a frog jumping out" in french, English meaning is "Don't drink the water". The other is "little girl sitting on a potty chair looking at pictures on the floor with a rose next to them" in French, English meaning is "Business is Business". I bought these at a picture framing shop (Atlanta) that had prints for sale. Owner looked up George Redon, found them and ordered them for me. Probably any frame shop that sells prints can find them for you. I had them matted and framed and have them together in my bathroom. Probably 30 years now.

Default Georges Redon

I have two prints with menu on back. One says le canard mage les limaces (not too sure of spelling) and one that says Pa Poule Mange Les escargots. Any idea what they would be worth?
Thanks!
Annie

I love this print,mine is copied in 1931, 8 years before I was born, it has aged and is more brown than I think it should be, I have had it 48 years, inherited, is it possible to regain some color, ai am scared to take it from the frame?

Default Peeing Boy

In my mothers attic, I found a print of the boy peeing in the lake and one of a little girl holding a doll while she watches a boy peeing at the base of a tree. If anyone is looking, I'd like to sell them.
